[aprssig] APRSPoint + Spyware ?

It may be related to Microsoft's Mapoint itself. Seems like a year or two
ago there was a thread on the list about how the 2008 version of mappoint
installed all kinds of crap on the machine that would monitor your
activities.



Thank You,

  Does anyone know what is up with APRSPoint? While attempting to download
the latest installment of APRSPoint, my firewall aborted the download
indicating "This request is blocked by the SonicWALL Anti-Spyware Service.
Name: SupremeSpy Setup Download supremespydemo.msi (Commercial Monitoring
Software)".



  Granted, it has been several years since I looked at APRSPoint, but with
the notice received above, one has to wonder if the application is safe.
Yes, I realize I could make an exception to the Anti-Spyware Service to
allow the file to download, but I chose not to.
